FAQs

Questions you have, hmmmm? Answer I must then.

Lol, sorry, my youngest minion is walking around the house talking like Yoda. I think it’s starting to get to me. 😉

I decided to finally start a FAQs page to answer some common questions that I receive often. If you have a question that you do not see on this list, please feel free to ask and I’ll answer it as soon as I can!

  1. Where can I meet you in person?
    • Please check out my “Upcoming Events” page for details on any conventions or signings I might attend. I’ve had tons of requests from almost everywhere in the world, and I promise I’ll travel as far as I can, as often as I can.
  2. Has anyone told you that Big Bad Bite, Walk On The Striped Side, Secret Maneuvers and/or The Burning Star has spelling and editing errors?
    • Why YES, I have been told that! But did you know all of those books went through a second (and sometimes third) proper round of editing? There’s a very good chance that you have an OLD version on your e-reader/kindle fire/nook/etc! Did you know that you can UPDATE ebooks at no cost? Authors, such as myself, often reload a properly edited manuscript, but you have to update your library first! You can find directions to do just that HERE. Sorry for the first round of badly edited books though. I was a penniless author just trying to break out there for a while. I can now afford editing, YIPPEE, lol! 🙂
  3. Are your books available in print? Can I buy them in a book store?
    • I do have books available in print, but unfortunately you will not find them in book stores since I am an independent author. You can order print copies through Amazon, B&N and Books-A-Million.
  4. Do you sell signed print copies of your books?
    • Yes, YeS, YES I do! At this time you can email me to inquire about signed books.
      • jessie_lane (at) jessielanebooks1.com
    • Please be aware that you will have to pay for shipping, and I ship via USPS Flat Rate Services. I hope to have an online store up and running soon though! 🙂
  5. Why can’t I find any of your upcoming books on Pre-Order?
    • Because I’m not that cool yet. Just kidding! The truth is I will not put a book up for pre-order unless I know 100% I can get that book to you on a specified date. If I’m unsure for any reason, I will not use a pre-order because I really don’t want the hassle of disappointing people.
  6. Why is there such a long wait between books in a series?
    • Short answer – I have what I lovingly refer to as “Writer’s Attention Deficit Disorder”. What does that mean? Well, it means I write a paranormal book and then my brain says “NO MORE! Let’s do contemporary now!” So my brain bounces around more than a mexican jumping bean. I know it can be sort of annoying at times, but I’m begging you, pretty please, just put up with me and my quirks please. 🙂
  7. What is the next book you’re releasing?
    • Please remember that I have Writer’s ADD (explained above in answer 6), and I tend to switch genres faster than you can say Euripides. Also, please keep in mind that I’m a full time mom of two crazy minions with a packed schedule, the wife to a Grizzly Bear who works at a very busy Emergency 911 Dispatch Center, and an independent author. What does all of that mean? Well, it means that I have to shuttle kids back and forth to archery practices and tournaments 3 to 4 days a week. My grouchy Grizzly works insane hours. And I like being an independent author because it allows me to work at a pace that doesn’t turn me completely cuckoo. So, to finally answer your question, I don’t like release dates. If I’m 90% sure I can meet a specified date, I’ll give it to you. Otherwise, I do not like announcing them anymore because I really hate disappointing readers. In essence, I’ll tell you what I’m working on, but you’re not getting a date until I know for sure. Make sense? You can see what I’m currently working on my “Coming Soon” page.
  8. What is the reading order for the: Big Bad Bite/Ex Ops/Regulators MC/Star Series?
    • All books are listed in reading order on their series page. You can find those under the “Titles” page. 🙂
  9. How many books will you write for the: Big Bad Bite/Ex Ops/Regulators MC/Star Series?
    • Star Series – 3 books. The Divine Star will be the last book and M.L. Pahl and I hope to write it sometime before this century ends.
    • Regualtors MC – 3 books. Ice, Hammer & Coal are the only 3 books Chelsea Camaron and I plan to write in that series.
    • Big Bad Bite – I honestly have no bloody idea! Yes Alec is getting a book. As of this moment I hope to write at least another 3 or 4 including Alec’s book and The Demon Who Loved Me.
    • Ex Ops – I have a vague idea of how many books there will be in the series, but that number changes on any given day. More than likely you’ll get another 2 or 3 books out of me after Sweet Agony & Sweet Recovery. And YES, one of those will be Declan and Teagan’s story. Beyond that, mum’s the word!
  10. Will there be more books in the Big Bad Bite Series? You sort of left me hanging after Walk On The Striped Side and I really, really, REALLY want Kent and Chloe’s story in The Demon Who Loved Me!!!
    • YES. I’m terribly sorry for the horrid delay. To sum things up, 2015 was not a good year for me medically and EVERYTHING was delayed. I feel positively wretched that you’ve been waiting so long, but I do promise you it’s coming!
  11. Hey Jessie, if I send you this super awesome idea for a book, will you write it for me and then give me a cut of the sales?
    • Nope. Sorry. And if you do email me any story ideas I will promptly delete them. No offense, it’s a legal thing.
  12. Is there anything I should know before I read one of your books?
    • I swear worse than a sailor and my intimate scenes between my main characters can be a bit graphic and a whole lot of smexy. I like to write about real life issues such as abuse, depression and possibly any other topic you may consider a “trigger”. If you have a problem with these sorts of things, please do not read my books. You won’t hurt my feelings at all, pinky promise. I know I’m not everyone’s cup of tea. I also know what it’s like to live as a survivor of sexual assault, and live with rather severe anxiety and depression issues. I totally understand if my sometimes raw, gritty, and/or gut wrenching scenes are not something you want to endure. On a positive note, any of my readers will tell you I love humor, being silly and sometimes snarky. There’s always light to balance the dark. 😉

  1. I purchased the book The Regulators MC Coal and discovered there are a lot of blank pages where the story is just missing! I’m assuming that is just some type of error, but I would really like to read the book I paid for. I’m not sure what to do with a book that has big gaps in the story where it’s just missing and there is no way to actually follow the storyline. Please check into it if you would please. I purchased the book through Barnes and Noble on my Nook app. Thank you for being a very talented writer and sharing your stories with the world.

    1. Hi Andrea! Chelsea Camaron and I looked into the situation, and the thing is, we didn’t find anything wrong with the book. The only thing we can think of is that it had some sort of glitch when it was downloading to your device. Can you please try deleting and then redownloading the book from your library and see if that helps? Please let me know what happens! Jessie Lane

  2. Hey what’s happening with Sweet Recovery, I’ve been waiting on tender hooks since this trilogy began to find out what’s going to Lucas and Ginny and if they will have a hea. All it says in your upcoming books is that it would be out late October to early November and we’re almost into December without any updates or a cover reveal. Please can you let us know as soon as you can. 😟

    1. Don’t kill me Olivia! It’s coming, it’s coming! In fact, it’s almost finished. I’m not announcing a release date – just pushing the the publish button the second it’s done. So keep your eyes peeled in the next two to three weeks and I’m sorry for the wait. ❤ Jessie
